21.06.2013 – A new research project about the governance of academic teaching will start at 01.10.2013. The Federal Ministry of Education and Research will fund the project "Transformational Governance of Academic Teaching (TeachGov)" from 01.10.2013 until 31.09.2016. Main topic is the effectiveness of transformational governance of teaching. In former research projects we already analyzed the influence of transactional governance on teaching behavior. Now we are looking for empirical evidence for the influence of transformational governance on academic teaching behavior.

The project focuses on the inter-generational knowledge transfer. At the moment we are conducting interviews and a survey regarding the type of knowledge of elder work council members, barriers and supporting factors for knowledge transfer from elder to younger members, and we will develop some tools for supporting inter-generational knowledge transfer.
